தேங்காய் மொச்சை மசாலா I COCONUT FIELD BEANS CURRY

Yum
mocha-kotta-curry

Hi friends, here is a simple yet delicious curry with pachai mochai/field beans. Now the mochai are available everywhere, and we used to prepare mochai kuzhambu, mochai curry or the coconut mochai masala. I love the coconut mochai curry more than the kuzhambu. I post the recipe for Tamizhar Samayal Tuesday who is conducted by +Nalini akka from Nalinis Kitchen.




The mochai curry is easy to make, and you can prepare it on a pressure cooker to save time and gas. But I used open pot method, because my beans were very tender, so it takes less time to cook.  Great combo with plain rice and rasam.

  9. Do we need to soak the mocha kottai before?

  10. No need to soak if it's fresh mochai if it's dry mochai have to soak it overnight or 6-7 hours
